Neighbors were concerned someone was still inside a west Erie home when a fire broke out Friday.

Firefighters were called to the home in the 900 block of West 20 St. around 7:20 p.m.

Neighbors believed someone was still inside, but firefighters did not find anyone after two searches of the home.

The rear of the house suffered the worst of the damage.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
